Player Spotlight: Ordellya

Player Spotlight: Ordellya

Jul 15, 2016

  It’s been some time, but we finally have another Player Spotlight submission. This time, we have the norn ranger, Ordellya, decked out in black and white. She is wearing the full Predatory set of armour, minus the helm, which is a second tier norn cultural set. Her weapon, a wolfborn longbow, is also part of the norn cultural weapons, matching her...

The Dream isn’t Real. The Wyld Hunt is a Lie.

The Dream isn’t Real. The Wyld Hunt is a Lie.

May 14, 2016

It is now quite clear what I suspected about the sylvari to be true, with gathered knowledge from the jungle dragon and its minions, their whole point of being is a lie. Sylvari first appeared on Tyria in 1302 AE; there were only 12 at first, called the Firstborn by the second batch to emerge from the Pale Tree, thus named the Secondborn. The Tree itself was...

Player Spotlight: Prevenant Lincoln

Player Spotlight: Prevenant Lincoln

Jan 8, 2016

We’re going to start highlighting players’ characters once again. Much like Cithryth’s ‘Weekly Outfit’, Player Spotlight, will cover a player’s character and their outfit. The only real difference is this will not be done weekly, but rather ranging from a week to a month, depending on how often we receive submissions. Our...

An Asura Family Wintersday

An Asura Family Wintersday

Dec 25, 2015

It was lightly snowing at the Asura News Network labs, just a few stone shaped buildings spread throughout a small valley in the Brisband Wildlands. Most of the krewe have left to enjoy Wintersday with their families and friends. Only one building is still lit, with a smokestack lifting into the dusk. An asura girl is sitting in front of a fireplace, lightly...

The Chak: What are they and are they related to the Karka?

The Chak: What are they and are they related to the Karka?

Nov 10, 2015

As a zoologist I, Meltak – Head of the ANN krewe, have performed observations on various species throughout Tyria, including the karka. Now, I set my sights on a new, equally petrifying creature. The chak are a crab like species located deep in the Maguuma jungle, with several variations in characteristics and combat capabilities. Some have feelers and a...

A Look into Tyria: Scholar’s Cleft

A Look into Tyria: Scholar’s Cleft

Sep 8, 2015

The Priory research facility, Scholar’s Cleft, is hidden in a small corner of Snowden Drifts. Not much happens here, except the occasional centaur or dredge attack. It serves as a site of rest for traveling Priory members and is a good place of study for its seclusion in the mountains. While not as extravagant or backstory heavy as other havens spread...

A Look into Tyria: Rata Pten

A Look into Tyria: Rata Pten

Aug 26, 2015

Northwest of Mt. Maelstrom, lies the ancient asura city of Rata Pten, built into the walls of Criterion Canyon. Little remains, only the husk of what was once a bustling city is left standing. Now, there are only spiders and remnants of the asura that once lived here. The Durmand Priory are currently excavating the ruins for relics they believe may be used...

The Story of Annon: Missing Part 2

Aug 24, 2015

<<Prev|First|Next>> Chapter 2: Missing Part 2: The Search Marx and Arista were able to backtrack to the Zephyrites before dusk, as they were not slowed by Annon and her golem, though the sun was already starting to set. The merchants looked weary, with all they’ve been through over the last couple years, who wouldn’t be. First it was the...

A Look into Tyria: Southsun Cove

A Look into Tyria: Southsun Cove

Aug 12, 2015

Southsun Cove is an island, considered to be a part of Kryta, though it is in the Sea of Sorrows and closer to the Tarnished Coast. The island also appears to have once been underwater, as some of the flora and fauna look to have deep sea origins; ship wrecks in high up areas also seem to indicate this fact. Even with its tropical climate, vegetation cannot...

Smokescales: The Difference Between Good Mechanics and Being OP

Smokescales: The Difference Between Good Mechanics and Being OP

Aug 9, 2015

  I’ve read many people complimenting ANet on finally making difficult content and I mostly agree, but there’s one glaring issue people are praising instead of pointing out. Granted smokescales are difficult to fight, which can be a good thing, but is not in this particular case. 90% of the time the smokescale is untouchable, but can still do serious...

Jul 16, 2015

<<Prev|First|Next>> Chapter 2: Missing Part 1: Making Plans I’m turning sections with certain themes into chapters. The first was Overworked, this is Missing and the next… I don’t know myself yet. It’s still continuing to evolve and I’m going to expand the base from here, so while the story is about Annon it will also...
